deadline. now that's been done, there are some concerns about some new penalties that may be associated with the extension. you see, insurance coverage usually starts at the beginning of the month so if by the original deadline you had signed up by march 15, then you would not get coverage till april 1 which would mean that you would be breaking the law. so now you have some extra time, an extra six weeks. when you file your taxes for next year, you don't need to fill out a waiver. a guidance was released last night saying you don't need to claim that exemption. the health and human services saying, quote,, the administration has determined it would be unfair to require individuals to make penalty payments. the penalty would be starting at $95 per person just in 2014. now again the deadline is march 31, you won't have the coverage till may 1 but you also won't have the penalties. we'll talk about some of the

5:14am
good halloween around here. going to be mild and generally dry. if you're in western maryland or western virginia, there's a better chance you'll see a shower or two but here in the metro, east of the blue ridge, i think our rain will hold off for the most part till overnight friday night and during the day on friday. so friday will be an unsettled day. maybe some stronger thunderstorms as there's a pretty good cold front headed our way. but right now looking good for the little ones. here's a look at our forecast for everybody. chilly to start but a decent warm-up. by 1:00 59. we're in the 30s and 40s now. 3:00 62. close to that 63-degree high i'm forecasting. then by 7:00 57 degrees. notice the clouds increasing tonight with those winds coming in out of the east. that will bring in some low level moisture off the atlantic and that could form not just low clouds but even a patch or two of fog. this morning we've seen some clouds streak across the region here. we're back in the clear skies in d.c. with heavier clouds well to the south. generally south of interstate
5:15am
64. but we did have cloud cover south so it's warmer down there like tappahannock at 48. the bay keeps annapolis at 49 but notice all the middle 30s from fretd rick, cumberland -- frederick, cumberland. winchester at 36 this morning. nothing really going on. great visibility there with a temperature under clear skies at reagan national 44 degrees. that's a brisk start. but winds, thankfully, very light, north, northeast at 3. areas have winds which are actually fairly calm. nationally we've got the cold air up across the northern plains. there's some teens up here this morning coming out of canada and 20s. so we've got snow falling in north and south dakota. then in the rockies, big storm out west. as this thing moves east, the warm weather which is down across texas, the lower mississippi valley, it will be pushed in our direction so we're going to see nice temperatures the next few days. today still a little bit cool thanks to north, northeasterly winds. a front will sag south and start to lift back to the north
5:16am
later tomorrow, tomorrow night. so this afternoon going to have a decent amount of sunshine. clouds will thicken up. some sprinkles possible. better chance of rain west of the appalachians into the ohio valley. notice the moisture has a tough time crossing the mountains. still can't rule out a stray springle with a decent amount of clouds tomorrow morning. better chance we'll see sun in the afternoon and a mild day. upper 60s. with enough sun, a few of you may get over 70 tomorrow. as the front lifts north into thursday, here we are in the morning. showers extending into western maryland. this is along the front now lifting north. the warm air will return. i think thursday partly sunny to mostly cloudy with highs into the low, possibly mid-70s. then it rains friday. today 63. a nice day, cool day. tonight not as cold, 50 in town with mid-40s in the burbs. tomorrow 69 but the morning clouds, patch of fog and early shower but i think a few breaks of sun in the afternoon. near 70. 74 on halloween with a stray
5:17am
shower. better chances west. showers and storms likely friday and clearing out over the weekend, by the way. chilly sunday. sunday, don't forget to turn the clocks back an hour. you gain an hour of sleep. monika samtani, you're always smiling when i say gain an hour of sleep. >> you know, who wouldn't smile about that, whether you sleep as little as we do or not it feels great to have that extra hour, doesn't it? if you're planning to head in 066 this feels pretty good, too, coming in from manassas to centreville. no issues to report. we're in great shape on the beltway as well. west side of town. no problems on 95, thank goodness as you come up from dale city to springfield. let's take a live look outside. if you're planning to head here on 2670 in from falls -- 270 in from falls road, you're in good shape. a bit of volume from route 109 to 121. back to the maps. this time we're heading inside the beltway. 66 at 63 miles an hour. we'll take another live look outside. here's what it looks like in springfield. definitely getting heavier leaving route 644 to 495.

with 40s in the burbs. look at the clouds this morning come through the region. you see how they're moving east away from us so at the moment anyway, we've got clear skies in most areas, although there are a few more clouds upstream. we'll call it a mix of sun and clouds but a dry day and chilly start. down in the 30s, mid-30s. frederick at 34 with winchester and cumberland and petersburg, west virginia, even manassas down to 36 with andrews and the pax river naval air station 41. mild letter in fredricksburg at 47. outside on our weather camera, visibilities great. no problems out there. dry and clear, 44 with a light north, northeasterly wind at 3 miles an hour. and a barometer is rising. high pressure nudging from the north. a little boundary has snuck south of us. that's why the winds are turning to the north. a little front right down here. you'll notice to the north it's in the 20s and 30s. ottawa up there in the 20s with teens now in international falls and great falls, montana. so this cold air is oozing on in toward the rockies and the warmth is lifting up.
5:46am
the storm system is spinning out of the central rockies. this will take the 70s and move them toward our direction as we get into the afternoon here starting tomorrow even could get to 70 with enough sun. here's the storm, a big one spinning across nevada and utah with rain and mountain snows. this is snow from montana into the northern dakotas. then all of that warmth down south as i said will be pushed off toward the east and the northeast as we go through the next few days. so today a pretty quiet day. not perfectly blue. we'll have clouds streaming in from time to time. even though the future cast looks clear, i do believe there will be some high level clouds muddying up the sunshine a bit. the army flow is going to bring in some low level moisture along with the higher clouds. now we could have even some patchy fog by tomorrow morning. these showers out in the ohio valley will have a tough time moving east, actually kind of moving southeast falling apart over the mountain. still can't rule out a stray
5:47am
shower, especially wednesday morning. a couple of sunny breaks in the afternoon with highs in the upper 60s to perhaps low 70s with enough sun. now, by wednesday night, thursday morning, the front lifts back to the north. right here a line of showers, maybe isolated thunder through pittsburgh. potentially down in northern virginia but this should pass us pretty quickly so that we get in the warmer air for much of the day on halloween. i don't really see the rain until friday. 63 today, nice day, cool day. mix of sun and clouds. 50 tonight in town with the 40s in the suburbs. tomorrow near 70. going to be some early clouds and a patch of fog, even an isolated shower. 74 on halloween. a stray shower can't be ruled out. best chances will be in western maryland and mountains of west virginia. as we head towards friday, here comes a front, 72, showers and storms likely and on the weekend we're clearing out. fall back with the clocks and a chilly sunday. monika, good morning. >> good morning. it is a good morning. things are great. no problems to report for the most part. i hesitate to say that all the time. there is one crash on the
